Well I had my lap done yesterday and as nervous as I was about it I was sort of looking forward to it - I suppose I was thinking once I'd had definite conformation of endo I would almost get a bit of closure, like I'm not mad/overly sensitive/have a low pain threshold but that I do have a legitimate reason for all the pain, tiredness etc.
When I had my first gynae appointment he said it sounds like I had endo for certain and that I most likely also had it on my bowel. He asked me lots of questions about my symptoms and said it sounded like bad case of endo that I was suffering with. The doctor who referred me said the same thing.
Anyway I had my lap yesterday, I saw the gynae first thing (he said he didn't remember seeing before which didn't fill me with confidence) and said that quite often you don't find anything from a lap.
After the lap the nurse said to me that they didn't find anything and that it was good news so I should be pleased. I'm sure she means well but it's left me feeling kind of flat - had a long and nerve racking day yesterday and in a lot of pain now and for nothing it seems!
I just wondered if anyone else has gone through something similar? Is it possible that he missed it, or is there nothing wrong with me, maybe I do just have a very low pain threshold? Every period I have I take prescription strength ibuprofen and cocodamol or codiene and most of the time this doesn't even make a dent in the pain, I have a couple of days when I'm just in sheer agony I can't even sleep.
I'm just feeling really fed up and sorry for myself! I have been told I need a follow up appointment with the gynae in 6 weeks, so maybe he will have some answers for me...
Sorry for the rant, just feeling a bit... 😫
